Strange artifacts on some prints

Thu Mar 07, 2019 8:38 am

Hi, I'm a new user of Simplify3D and after 2 weeks of use I found the best settings for my printer (Anycubic I3 Mega).
I'm only having minor quality problems on some prints. For example on the 3DBenchy I get some sorts of blobs but even with heavy tweaking of settings like Extra Restart Distance, Coastig and Wipe nothing seems to help. I printed tens of boats and the artifacts are always the same, always on the same spots. Even setting the retraction distance on 0 I have exactly the same results (with lots of strings on other parts of the boat of course). Here some photos of the problem: https://imgur.com/a/fvkas0x. This was printed with PLA first 5 layers at 215c then 205. Bed temp 60c. Retraction distance 5mm, Extra restart 0, Coasting 0,2 and Wipe 4. Layer height 0,2, 2 shells, 10% Rectilinear Infill.

Anyone that has any idea on how to solve this?

Thanks a lot!
